of comfort with voters. the obama campaign guns in. plant closings, layoffs, outsourcing, income tax returns. they take a baseball bat in beat romney's brains in in the six or seven swing states. that is why his numbers were upside down. why they did that i do not know. i have been asking that question since june. it was a huge miscalculation. the romney campaign family intervention try to introduce him -- this is what they should have done back in may or june. >> mrs. romney and the oldest son of mitt romney went to the father and said to have to change things. >> for a long time, the family had wanted to take the charlie cook approach. chris wallace alluded to the fact that their big bet from the beginning was that all you had to be was not obama. that turned out to be wrong. we can see in the different channels that they are doing now. you have to be yourself in addition to not being obama. >> let me explain. a lot of you do not know who stuart stevens is. he is a republican strategist from mississippi. he was a hollywood writer. he used to write "northern exposure." he has written a coup
had when he ran years ago that a bigger government, spending more, taxing more, regulating more, if you will, trickle-down government would work. that's not the right answer for america. i will restore the vitality that gets america working again. up next, look at the findings of a new public opinion poll in the american attitude towards muslims and arabs. the polls conducted filing recent violent protests in the arab world that erupted in a film than a gritting islam. our al arabiya news channel was part of this 90 minute event hosted by the brookings institution. >> thanks for coming out on a somewhat dreary fall morning for an event that in many ways is more prodigiously timed today than it was when we planned it, because today that was when we planned it because primitive to candidate governor mitt romney is giving a major foreign policy address earlier today just to the south of casa addressing many of the middle east policy questions that we will be discussing over the course of the day. and i hope that we will be able to take a look at what the public opinion data may rev
. >> you can do that by cutting taxes? >> those are your words, not mine. >> thank you very much, sir. >> that was kind of strange. trying to stuff words in people's mouths? >> it sounds like you're -- >> ryan folks putting the paper in front of the camera and everything. vice presidential nominee paul ryan getting annoyed in this interview with terry camp in flint, michigan. the campaign even after the interview was over still went out of their way to trash the reporter that paul ryan walked out of that interview on. the campaign giving on the record quotes calling the reporter an embarrassment. the city where that reporter works and where that interview took place does have the worst violent crime rate in the nation. god bless flint, michigan. so that line of questioning here for mr. ryan was understandable. maybe even predictable. but beyond the newsworthiness of paul ryan getting up and taking off his microphone and ending the interview and beyond the newsworthiness of the campaign going after this reporter, there was what that reporter was able to elicit from paul ryan. there's h
. >> when talking about sesame street and not taxes, you know, foreign policy or, you know, what to do about the fiscal cliff, what kind of a campaign is that? >> well, this is -- so the gamut here, you mentioned, this is on cable tv nationally in some broadcast tv nationally and not in any swing state. if the obama campaign spent $100,000 on this ad buy, i would be surprised. they certainly don't have any real money behind it. this is meant to be a talker in the media and to send to their base and say see, mitt romney, he's being ridiculous. the danger when you do things like this, this close to an election is to your point, i got lots of republicans sending me the famous barack obama quote from 2008 about john mccain that he can't talk about big things in this election so he's trying to make it about small things. i don't think barack obama is trying to make this election about big bird. this seems a targeted strategy at a small group of people. at the same time it certainly opens them up to the, you know, look, we have serious problems in this country, barack obama has said that many time
on point impressed both of them hard. he pressed trying very hard on his budget numbers and tax plan and doesn't not work? does this add up? triggered by repeatedly from her. the interesting thing is the question of optics we were talking about before. there's also the question of how ryan's performance will play. it is a presidential? did that experience did not get comfortable enough on that stage? >> he was commonplace and that's what people wanted an obviously was rehearsed in taste. if he did put in that romney did on monday at the foreign policy institute, which was to take libya and pivot to a broader critiques of foreign policy, just as biden pivoted because it's a weakness getting out of iraq and afghanistan. >> biden seemed prepared to come back with the issue of funding for the security. they knew he was going to get attacked on security and had his answer right away, which was he wanted us, you cut the team. it was a good job of him expecting. in terms of this clip, we saw both sides anticipating this discussion. they both have a question was going to come. it came first
estate taxes, climate change, environmental regulations, energy policy are hurting farmers. he continues to go after the president on issue of jobs of the even though the unemployment number is down below the psych lodge call level at 8% on the stump in newport news, governor romney found a new way to use it. >> if you look back 60 years, at all the months we had unemployment before 8% before president obama. there were 39 months. in all 60 years with unemployment above 8%. under this president there have been 43 months. under one president alone. he does not understand what it takes to create a real recovery. i do. >> reporter: bill you mentioned the pew poll. the pew poll governor romney was seen as guy with new ideas. he was the one people trust to create jobs. bill: one of the lingering numbers in the debate governor romney's honesty to cut federal spending. >> taking on big bird. bill: how is the obama team, responding that, going after it? >> governor romney was trying to make a point cutting unnecessary spending said. i like pbs i like big bird. i even like you, jim lehrer, but i
, talk about taxes, talk about regulations, talk about getting people back to work. i think and i don't know but just judging by his record over the past ten years, i think he sees abortion as a sort of maddening distraction from what he considers to be his main agenda, which is work and jobs. >> do you -- okay. do you really think he thinks that, that it's something that -- you don't think he has a gut feeling about it, a belief? >> i don't think he has a core conviction about what the federal government should do with abortion. again, you look at how much he's gone back and forth. again, there are a lot of republicans, there are a lot of conservative republicans, mike, who -- what? >> i believe it's an impractical issue for anybody trying to run for president as a republican. i'm asking what you think he believes. >> that's what i'm telling you. all you have to do is see how many times he's changed on abortion to know this isn't at his he core. you can look at his record and know what is at his core. lower taxes, lower regulations, being pro-business, getting people back to work, be
and that is a very common tax by challengers. there were some good lines. he talked hope is not a strategy. he's tried to emphasize his critique of obama as fighting from behind, which was sort of an unnamed administration official at the very end of a new yorker magazine piece last year and has become a sort of state of republican critiques of the president's foreign policy. that being said, there are some real differences between obama and romney when it comes to foreign policy. for example, romney has russia as an important geopolitical united states. much of the surprise of his advisers at the time, but rather than locking away, just continue to emphasize emphasize and say vladmir putin look at no quarter. barack obama has synthesized as one of his major foreign policy accomplishments, a quote unquote reset with russia that has enabled us to get more done, but they are sending supplies into afghanistan through the northern route, which has become a more significant issue with problems of pakistan have made it difficult for us to get for an example or have a new missile -- sorry time a new
, they love politicians who want to raise your taxes, right? they love politicians who want to expand the nanny state and are going to check all the boxes here. they love presidents who have been wondering i peered well, if they have the right political views. they love the wives who actually stand by those presidents who are politicians of wandering eyes, as long as there is a senate seat potentially up for grabs. they love all things communist. i actually had a chance to live in the former soviet you and i don't really look back on my times that the soviet union as a college student, late pining for the days of soviet russia, that you get the sense of semi-reference an immediate city can only have the spread mind again, that would be awesome. from castro to gorbachev, other communist things come to mind, obama. no, o'reilly is going to yell at me for that. they love theirs. it brings them back to the day where they could draw a bright line. the evil united states versus the communitarians and the former soviet union. they love celebrities who when they hear the word complicated, akr
over the country about bashes vouchers, the tax credit, but not just catholic schools, but other kinds of religious schools and proliferation of different schools and also charter schools have variation intensive public schools because charter schools are indeed public schools. but that element, i think, gives rise -- i think that's the overall trend that i should be kept on. there is another trend come you have that upward line. the money down the line of special concern to me into the church that i work for. and that is the decline of catholic schools in urban centers, basically as catholics moved more to suburbs. a trend going on for a long time. the massive structure earlier in the century as being, i do want to say abandoned, but deluded as catholics. those institutions have now, what are they call it, for 20 years or so have been hanging in the in order to serve the broader community, not just the catholic students. that is becoming economically more and more difficult and i think parental choice in education is one of the things that can help arrest the trend. see that again thi
